I haven’t specified glass for projection room portals in decades and all I can remember is that it had an uncoated water treated finish. After talking with several major glass company reps, they response with a “...duhh.” I obviously have been talking to the wrong reps.

Can anyone suggest a product, a source, or even an audio-visual authority who can shed some light on this application? Do they even make this specialty glass anymore?

I just specified some and all we did on the glass schedule was put "non-reflective glass" in those locations -- that was the wording I got from our A/V consultant on the project. I have no idea what they do to make it that way.

Projection windows for projects I have done were also installed at an angle to vertical, presumably for reflection control, but I can't cite the exact reason. You might try talking to the A/V consultant who is specifying the equipment. They should be able to help.
